And here's a couple photos of food I've made for myself recently. First is some wild caught Copper River salmon topped with honeydew salsa, then some strawberry shortcake. I kept trying to think of how to put a Mexican spin on strawberry shortcake and never came up with anything. I garnished this dish with some Teddy Grahams and it seemed to work out fairly well. Man doth not live by Mexican food alone. Non-Mexican restaurants I've been to recently include the Disney Soda Fountain and Studio Store, Kabuki (again), Yoshinoya (the location at Harbor and Adams in Costa Mesa recently underwent a rather classy remodeling), Charlie Kabob, Panda Express, and First Class Pizza. Mexican restaurants I've visited recently and already reviewed, and may still review again, but didn't visit for review purposes include Taleo, Azteca's and Taco Rosa. I asked the co-worker who went with me to Taco Rosa if they deserved a five Speedy Gonzales rating and he said, "No, six." And Kantina is featured in the Marketplace section of today's Orange County Register. Also, just got back from a non-review visit to Wahoo's Fish Taco at the Irvine Spectrum with some co-workers.
After posting my report on the four or five Mexican restaurants I went to in Utah (I saw oh so many more though) I'll be hitting the trail here again. I've also got some technical issues to work out including the somewhat pesky, somewhat flattering fact that the number of visits to this blog have been overloading my server, and I'm a little bit closer to adding a Google Map feature to the site.
Was just contacted by one of the team members from a new site called OC Food Review. It has a very crisp, clean look to it and I can see it becoming the number one Orange County restaurant site on the web. They need people to contribute to their database so check it out.
